Stuck woman traps cave group

`An overweight woman who got stuck in a South African cave trapped 22 fellow tourists for more than 10 hours and had to be prised free with liquid paraffin.

The woman became trapped in the Tunnel of Love obstacle in the Cango Caves in Western Cape on New Year’s Day.

The caves’ manager said the woman had been warned she might not be suitable but she insisted on trying. [..]

No drilling equipment was needed and the woman was eventually freed with a pulley and paraffin used to grease the surface at about 2320.’
